Is Pb(NO3)2 Soluble in Water?

Pb(NO3)2 is soluble in water. Pb(NO3)2 is the formula of lead(II) nitrate, an inorganic compound whose water solubility is 52 grams per 100 milliliters at 20 degrees Celsius and 127 grams per 100 milliliters at 100 degrees Celsius.

Lead(II) nitrate’s molar mass is 331.2 grams per mole, and its density is 4.53 grams per cubic centimeter. This compound forms white, colorless crystals at standard temperature and pressure. It is produced from the reaction of metallic lead or lead oxide, PbO, in a solution of nitric acid, HNO3. These reactions also produce hydrogen gas and water, respectively. Lead(II) nitrate is a toxic substance, and it is classified as “probably carcinogenic to humans” by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
